Join the Club at My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe!

I’m always excited to tell you when my quilting friends are doing cool things! Did you hear about the new online club being run by My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe? They contacted me about offering a giveaway for this fun club to one of you – so read to the end for details!

My Girlfriend's Quilt ShopBut first, I have to tell you a little bit more about them. The shop is owned by talented friend Kris Thurgood. (Many of you also know her twin sister Kim of Kimberbell designs). Well, I first got to know both Kim and Kris over several years at quilt market and we had an instant connection. I love supporting women in business and especially love meeting powerhouse entrepreneurs that are go-getters in the quilting community.

A couple of years ago, Kris invited me out to teach at her shop in Utah and I had the most amazing time!! Of course the students were fabulous and the location was amazing! But even better was assistance I received while teaching. Just a month prior I had dislocated my elbow by trying to be a little too ambitious at the climbing gym (that’s another story for another day). To make a long story short, I ended up teaching one handed and everyone was so fabulous to help me pitch in and fold up my quilts for me and drive me around where I needed to go.

If you’d like to see a fun little blast from the past, check out these two videos that Kim and her staff shared about my visit from 2017. It’s a sneak peek into what it’s like to take a class from me:

Over the years, My Girlfriend Quilt Shop has carried a few of  my books and patterns in their shop. But the best news is, I just found out that they are getting my Gridwork fabric line in next month. So if you are local to the area – be on the lookout for that!

Be on the lookout for my Gridwork fabric coming soon to My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe!

Anyway, all of this is to say that Kris and her staff are one of the reasons that I love being a part of this industry – we help each other out while inspiring our fans and customers to be the best quilters they can be!!

So now – onto the giveaway!!

    What a great giveaway. I can’t say what my favorite part is, it’s different for each piece. The whole process just makes me happy.

  2. Lynda H says:

    of the topics you have, piecing is my jam. I have somewhat of a bucket list of quilts that I want to make – so far have done a bargello and a large paper pieced project. Currently I am working on a one block wonder using some Hawaiian fabric I bought last year.

  3. Carole says:

    I LOVE every part of quilting, picking the pattern, the fabrics, putting it together, machine quilting, and even binding. It all makes me happy!

  4. susanne murphy says:

    I enjoy it all, but if I had to choose it would be sitting and hand sewing binding. It means the quilt is just about doen, and almost ready to give away. I’m trying to keep more for myself this year.

  5. Heather says:

    I love right next door to My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shop—it’d be great to take some classes there on how to design your own pattern (quilt math shortcuts, color theory, piecing shortcuts like strip piecing, etc.)!

  6. Patty says:

    I would say quilting. I have lots of tops done. I have used your quilting techniques on baby quilts, next I’m going to attempt lapsize., but…..

  7. Cindy Ferris says:

    Since I’m still new to quilting, it would have to be piecing. However, because I’m still new at it, I soak up all information and hope to expand my abilities with all of the other topics!

  8. Jo-Ann Higgins says:

    Hi Christa Just saw your quilts from 2017 at *My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe. *What a nice display! I was wondering if you have a picture or a pattern of the one that has a black background and strips of blue on one corner and then strips of red/yellow in the other corner. So many I like are hidden in the back row and impossible to appreciate. Jo-Ann

  9. Louise V says:

    Bold shapes and colors in fabric medleys placed/pieced so not to overpower each other? Then how to effectively quilt so complements design? 😐

  10. Robyn O says:

    I would love to learn more about free motion quilting on my home machine. I would love to make a wood grain pattern on a quilt for my husband!

  11. Reg says:

    Although I have owned Bernina machines for years, all of which can do machine embroidery, I have never felt confident when attempting a project. Like everything else, I think practice makes perfect and there just isn’t enough time in the day to do it all. So definitely for me, learning more about machine embroidery would make me very happy.

  12. LIZ THERRIEN says:

    I would like to learn more about machine embroidery. I have a couple older model Berninas that will do it, but not enough knowledge or time to learn. Thank you for this chance to win.

  13. Vickie Clark says:

    I must really enjoy piecing because that’s what I keep doing, but I really want to get into machine quilting. Just not brave or patient enough. Your fabric line is beautiful!

  14. Rita S says:

    I love the Piecing part of quilting but I am trying to stretch my wings and do more machine quilting with a sit down longarm. Best part is when the quilt is bound and finished.

  15. Patricia says:

    I enjoy every phase of quilting, from picking the pattern, choosing the fabrics,putting it together, sandwiching, machine quilting, and even binding. It all makes me happy!

  16. Martha Cook says:

    Definitely quilting. We have all the instructions and list of what we need to finish a project but I have a dozen UFO’s that reveals my mental block how to finish them. So thankful Christa that you include that in your patterns.

  17. Beth says:

    I’m very new to longarm quilting so right now that is my topic of choice. As with many others all of the topics hold appeal. Thanks

  18. Helma says:

    At this moment I really love the quilting part the most. I am reading and watching a lot about longarm-quilting lately. Who knows what the future will brings🤗

  19. Jeanette Atkinson says:

    Machine embroidery is favorite. I have so many ideas and see a lot of inspiration as I search the web.
    I also like My Girlfriends Quilt Shop when I travel to that area.

  20. Rebecca R Forbes says:

    This sounds like SO much fun! I would love to learn more about free motion quilting. It is my dream to totally finish my own quilts.
